Wider access to evidence-based flight training

CAE becomes first provider to offer Boeing competency-based training and assessment (CBTA)

CAE signed for Boeing’s CBTA curriculum

Stephanie Pope, President and CEO of Boeing Global Services, and Marc Parent, President and CEO of CAE, signed an agreement for CAE to be the first authorized provider of Boeing’s CBTA curriculum.

This week at the Paris Air Show, Boeing and CAE announced that CAE will become the first Boeing Authorized Training Provider to offer Boeing’s Competency-Based Training and Assessment (CBTA) curriculum.

"This partnership expands our competency-based flight-training capacity to better meet the needs of our customers worldwide,” said Stephanie Pope, president and CEO, Boeing Global Services. "By sharing data, leveraging digital capabilities, and providing greater accessibility and affordability, Boeing and CAE are enhancing global aviation safety.”

The shift to CBTA curriculum in pilot training focuses on developing and evaluating skills, knowledge and behaviors essential for pilots to operate safely and efficiently in a commercial air transport environment. Boeing’s implementation of CBTA leverages digitally advanced tools and fleet operations data to customize training to each individual, and helps train pilots to respond efficiently to in-flight challenges.

Why it’s important:

As commercial air travel demand continues to grow, Boeing’s 2022 Pilot and Technician Outlook forecasts 602,000 newly qualified pilots are needed to support the global commercial fleet over the next 20-years. Operators must have access to training when and where they need it and this new partnership allows CAE to utilize Boeing’s CBTA curriculum to meet those requirements.
